Dear Dr. Lederberg:
I wanted to let you know that my father died last month. He has been sick for some time and was living in a nursing home. He died of pneumonia and congestive heart failure.
We had a nice, simple service for him with a eulogy and some beautiful Beethoven music, which he loved very much.
We all miss him a lot and mourn his passing and celebrate the greatness of his completed life.
Sincerely
Steve Stodola
